viewers understand, you and steve croft of cbs, you were the only two of all the journalists globally who asked for this kind of access to the president, you got it. >> yeah. >> given this access, when you spoke with president obama, what was the one thing he told you about this raid that most surprised you? >> well, really i think it was that when admiral mcraven first outlined the mission, what it would take to send the squadron of s.e.a.l.s. into abbottabad, the admiral recommended if they woke pennsylvania's military and were confronted -- woke up pennsylvan pakistan's military and were confronted -- they thought that admiral mcraven would have been more aggressive on this point, but president obama said, no, if you're going in, i want you to be prepared to fight your way out because we're not going to leave those men at the mercy of our negotiations with pakistan. >> and finish. and finish. >>> and i think it's interesting, the title of your book. it comes from an acronym for find, fix, finish. what does that mean, what does that mean in conjunction with this wade? >> right. well, th

schlessinger is the editor at large at cbs money watch.com. good to see you. thank you for joining us here to help us with this. you heard the candidates weigh in. how would you characterize today's reports, beyond what the rhetoric of what they say about it? >> first, let me say they're both sort of right. so each side has a point. but when you look at this report, i was so elated this morning, 171,000 is more jobs than we thought were going to be create the crea created. we thought there would be 125,000. you talked about the unemployment rate. let's discuss why it went up. it went up because we had a few more people, that re-entered the workforce, looking for jobs. that means they feel optimistic they can get a job. we have been talking about how people have been leaving the labor force, so we had some people come back into the labor force, that pushed the unemployment rate up by a tenth of a percent and another real positive, revisions to the previous two months totaled 84,000. we're averaging about 157,000 jobs a month this year. it is trending a little bit above last year. but the bo

, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york times, cbs news an quinnipiac poll. florida, 48-47 for obama. ohio, 50-45 for obama. and finally virginia, 49-47 for obama. these three states very, very close. looking at the numbers, what do they tell you? >> reporter: they tell me, brooke, they're fascinating, in particular florida and virginia. these are the big three swing states. that's what we have been going through on the battleground bus tour. florida, virginia, ohio. mitt romney had real momentum coming out first debate. he had gotten a sizable or comfortable narrow, but narrow lead in florida, virginia, that seems to have dissipated where the two polls you mentioned have obama narrowly up and ohio has always been president obama's firewall. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio. that leaves something sizable good for chicago. there is so much noise around the polls now, the focus is on early voting and the ground game. it is no substitute for actual votes. and that's what folks of both campaigns right now. >> john avalon in the battlegr
% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you concerned that obama will win the popular vote, romney will win the elector
, it's the battle for the state and the electoral votes. these are brand new numbers out from cbs/new york times and quinnipiac. three of the most important battleground states, one is ohio. the president has a five-point advantage for ohio with 18 electoral votes. florida and virginia are also battleground states, basically tied up according to the new numbers from quinnipiac. >> we have heard mitt romney wants to expand the map to michigan, maybe pennsylvania. people saw that as a sign of maybe going on offense, but if the ohio number is really five points or three to five points as we have seen in a number of polls here, it could be that romney needs to find another way to pick up the electoral votes and not get ohio. >> every republican who has won the white house has won ohio. it's tradition, you need it, but there's an avenue for mitt romney to do it without ohio but it is tough. eventually he would have to bring up the score everywhere else in the battleground states or try to expand the map. >> we are also hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yester
